Returning to our Roots

rootsThe White Water Gallery (WWG) is one of the oldest Artist-Run Centres (ARCs) in Canada, having been formed in 1974 and incorporated in 1977.  Over the years WWG has showcased hundreds of artists and featured exhibitions and events of regional, provincial, and national importance. This has resulted in the accumulation of hundreds of print-based and audio/visual materials of cultural significance. In an effort to preserve and document the rich history of our organization we have utilized technological innovations that will make information more accessible and easier to manage… in short, we are posting our exhibition archives on the internet.

Returning to our Roots is a large-scale archiving project that celebrates the history of the White Water Gallery by looking at key moments in the organization’s history and showcasing our programming achievements. We will be launching this new digital archive in September of 2014 as part of our local Culture Days Celebration.

White Water Gallery would like to acknowledge the Government of Ontario for their generous support of this project.
